We went to check out the Dr Winfred And Elizabeth Moore Assisted Living Center on the advice of a friend, while in the area looking for places for our uncle to live. The buildings resemble a modern apartment structure.
The furnishings in the formal communal areas were nice, if a bit stiff, but there was much more comfortable furniture in the resident focused rooms, where it really counts. For example, the living area had a nice, big sofa. There were also a number of easy chairs.
The living quarters offer two different designs for studios -- one that has the living space divided, and the other in an open floor plan. We hadn't seen a choice for this size apartment before, so it is nice to have an option.
We liked that there was an on-site wellness center, spa and pharmacy. They also offer pastoral care for residents.
The staff is what is really exceptional at this facility. There is plenty to do -- and nothing is missing. But it is the care that the residents receive that is most important to us. Without that, we wouldn't care what else they had.
We could see that they treat everyone with respect and dignity -- they develop meaningful relationships with their residents and families. That, to us, means more than anything. Because of that, we would strongly consider placing our uncle here to live, knowing that he will be well cared for in every way possible.
